"I have always loved art," says Kiran Nadar, wife of HCL founder, Shiv Nadar.

For close to two decades, she has been one of India's top art collectors. Her collection is open to the public at the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, where HCL's headquarters are also located.

The museum recently started a branch in south Delhi as well. "What good is art if one cannot share it, which is why I display all of this," she says.

She dreams of creating a still bigger and better museum such as the Guggenheim in Bilbao (Spain), or the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
